Chancellor Tranquada said that Dr. Emerson had been 
strong in the areas of service and teaching since coming 
to the Medical Center and over the course of years had 
compiled an impressive research record. After discussion 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 
the President in the award of tenure to 
Charles H. Emerson, Professor of Medicine 
at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester. (Doc". T86-006) 

The next item was Appointments with Tenure --UM/- 
Amherst. Provost O'Brien said that each of the candidates 



had excellent records in his or her discipline. Professor 
Quin would also serve as Head of the Department of Chem- 
istry, a position he held at Duke University. Also, Pro- 
fessor Shell would serve as Chairman of the Department of 
Comparative Literature. While the Amherst campus has a 
number of Near Eastern specialists, Professor Haddad will 
be the first whose discipline is history. Professor 
Duffie's area of expertise is in manufacturing engineering 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and

The Committee then discussed Waiver of Sabbatical 
Leave Requirement — UM/Boston. Chancellor Corrigan said 
that Dr. Grossman had served for sixteen years as Pro- 
fessor of History and for fifteen years as Director of 
Libraries. Starting from virtually nothing he had estab- 
lished a good library. Chairman Troy noted that the 
Trustees had on many occasions postponed the sabbatical 
leave requirement and this was the first time they had 
dealt with a waiver. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board waive the 
requirement that Professor Walter 
Grossman return to the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston on completion 
of his sabbatical leave. (Doc. T86-007) 

The next item concerned the Master of Education in 
Bilingual/ESL Program — UM/Boston. Chancellor Corrigan 
said that this program was part of the consolidation with 
Boston State College and was the only Master of Education 
program offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. 
After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board change the 
Master of Education in Bilingual/ESL 
Program at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston to the Master of Arts in 
Bilingual/English as a Second Language

The last action item was Graduation Lists — UM/Amherst 
and UM/Worcester . After brief discussion it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
graduation list of the Class of 1986 at 
the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester and the February, 1986, gradu- 
ation lists of the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst. Both subject to the 
completion of all requirements as certi- 
fied by the recorder of the campus. 
(Doc. T86-001) 

The Committee then discussed the Admissions and Finan - 
cial Aid Annual Report . Vice President Smith said that an 
effort had been made not to overwhelm the Trustees with 
reams of paper. Instead, summaries for each campus had 
been prepared. Chancellor Corrigan spoke about the in- 
crease in transfer applications and enrollment. A record 
number of undergraduate applications had been received 
since the establishment of UM/Boston. Amherst, too, re- 
ceived the highest number of undergraduate applications 
since 1975 - receiving a large number of out-of-state 
applications . 

Financial Aid at both campuses was reported to be pro- 
blematic because of increased federal regulations and 
paperwork with an unmet need of financial aid for both 
campuses. 

Trustee Burgess then introduced, for discussion, the 
Elimination of the Sports Teams at the Amherst Campus, 
Ms. Colleen Sweeney, Captain of the Women's Ski Team and 
Mr. David Greenberg, Captain of the Men's Ski Team pre- 
sented their views why the Ski Teams should continue at 
the varsity level and be supported by the University. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 3:40 p.m.

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. 

The first item considered was the Establishment of a

of Massachusetts at Worcester. Chancellor Tranquada in 
describing the request said that the proposal formalizes 
the existing program and recognizes it as a separate 
academic entity within the Medical Center. After a brief 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish a 

Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at 
the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester as described in Doc. T86-018. 

The next item was Appointments with Tenure at the

The- Committee then considered Awards of Tenure at 
Amherst, Boston, and Worcester. Dr. Smith noted the 
quality of the candidates presented, many of whom are 
outstanding scholars. All candidates underwent rigorous 
reviews, at least five stages, on each of the campuses and 
in most cases the agreements for tenure were unanimous. 
In terms of the quantity, out of the approximately 
twenty-six candidates presented eight were women and three 
were minority. 

Chancellor Corrigan spoke to the awards of tenure at 
Boston and noted that the candidates were predominately 
minority and female. Mr. Troy commented that the general 
supportive materials were fine and it was an impressive 
list . 

Dr. Kelly reviewed the background of the two 
individuals recommended for tenure at Worcester. 

Without further discussion, it was moved, seconded and

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
ACADEMIC AND STUDENT AFFAIRS 

Wednesday, May 21, 1936; 2:00 p.m. 

Thirteenth Floor Conference Room 

250 Stuart Street 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chairman Troy; Trustees 
3owman, Burgess, Caruso and Zervas; Mrs. Fontaine, Admini- 
strative Secretary; 

University Administration : President Knapp; Dr. Smith, 
Vice President for Academic Affairs; Mr. Searson, General

tative 

UM/Worcester : Provost Kelly 

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. 

Vice President Smith introduced the first item on the 
agenda, Appointments with and Awards of Tenure . He gave 
the following profile: Out of the ten recommendations 
from Amherst four were female and one was minority. At 
Boston, there were a total of three with one female and of 
the two recommendations from Worcester one was minority. 

Provost O'Brien then spoke to the individual cases. 
He announced with regret that Adolph Reed, a very fine 
black political scientist from Yale, had declined the Uni- 
versity's offer of appointment with tenure and decided to 
remain at Yale. 

In response to a question raised concerning the campus 
recommendations and votes on tenure, he made the general 
point that the system is not set up to give an indication 
of what the problems are when there is a single negative 
vote or single absention. He has written to the Chairman 
of the campus personnel committee and has indicated that 
it would be best to explain these situations. 

Trustee Burgess expressed the view that the campus 
presentations should be consistent and it was agreed that 
future recommendations would follow the format outlined in 
the Amherst campus recommendations. 



After a discussion of the individual appointments and 
awards with tenure, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 
the President in the appointment with 
tenure of the following individuals: 

University of Massachusetts at Amherst: 

Stephen Malkin as Professor of Mechanical 

Engineering

Nsidinanya Okike as Associate Professor of 
Surgery 

(Doc. T86-026) 



Provost O'Brien introduced the next item, the 
Bachelor of Science Degree in Landscape Architecture . 
Until 1969, the campus awarded both undergraduate and 
graduate degrees in landscape architecture. Due to a 
restriction imposed by the accrediting agency that the 
University could only offer one accredited degree program, 
the undergraduate program was withdrawn by the depart- 
ment. The regulation has changed to allow two programs 
and the campus has determined that significant demand for 
the undergraduate program remains and proposes to re- 
establish the Bachelor of Science Degree. The program 
would require no new resources. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board re-establish 
the Bachelor of Science Degree in Land- 
scape Architecture at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. (Doc. T86-029) 

The next item was to approve a Nomenclature Change 
from Instructional Media to Instructional Design at 
Boston. The new name more accurately describes the 
program at it currently exists. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board change the 
name of the Master of Education in In- 
structional Media at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston to the Master of 
Education in Instructional Design. (Doc. 
T86-033) 

Provost Greene presented the proposal to offer a Joint 
Major in Psychology and Sociology at Boston. There would 
be no change in terms of the number of staff or courses 
presently offered. The proposal provides an opportunity 
for a student to graduate with a joint major in these dis- 
ciplines which are complementary. Although the University 
is currently authorized to offer a degree in each area, 
the Board of Regents consider it a new degree and require 
approval. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston to 
offer the degree Bachelor of Arts in Pysc- 
hology and Sociology. (Doc. T86-032) 

The next item was a recommendation to Consolidate the 
German and Russian Departments at the Boston campus. The 



-3- 



consolidation will result in a more efficient use of per- 
sonnel and resources. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

consolidation of the Department of German 
and the Department of Russian at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at 3oston to form 
the Department of German and Russian. 
(Doc. T86-031) 

The next request was for a second year's leave of 
absence without pay following Professor Sylvia 
Gendrop's sabbatical leave in order to complete the 
Ph.D. Provost Greene said that in the area of 
Nursing, only one percent of all the nursing instruc- 
tors across the nation possess the Ph.D.. At Boston, 
there is a very high percentage by national norms of 
faculty with Ph.D.'s It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To postpone for a further year the re- 
quirement that Professor Sylvia Gendrop 
return to the University on completion of 
sabbatical leave; further, to grant 
Professor Gendrop a leave without pay for 
the academic year 1986-87. (Doc. T86-034) 

Two candidates from Worcester were presented for 
approval of Degrees. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To award Charles Wolleben the degree 

Doctor of Philosophy in Medical Science 
and to award Nicholas Yannoutsos a Master 
of Science in Medical Sciences subject to 
the completion of all requirements. 

Doc. T86-035) 

Trustee Troy reported that the Code of Student Conduct 
was discussed at the Executive Committee meeting. He said 
he thought it might be wise to give it as much publicity 
and debate as possible on the campus. He cited the be- 
havior of a certain group of students and occasionally 
faculty whom Joseph Epstein a very fine critic has called 
the "virtuecrats" . The virtuecrats are a group of people 
who are convinced of their own virtue - their point of 
view is the rig_ht one and if you bring someone in who, for 
example, is a little conservative in his philosophy or has 
certain association's with a certain party they imme- 
diately bring out posters. He wondered if anything could 
be done before hand or through debate to stop that dread- 
ful kind of self-righteousness on the part of some of 
these activists. Counsel Searson pointed out that in- 
cluded in the Code there is a proviso that if someone in- 
terferes with someone elses right of free speech 

-4- 



that would be a violation of the Code which would warrant 
anything up to expulsion. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 2:55 p.m.

extensively in his field of economics. Dr. Bluestone will 
fill the Frank L. Boyden Chair of Political Economy. 
Lawrence Franko comes from the Fletcher School of Law and 
Diplomacy. He has extremely extensive experience in 
Geneva and Europe; generally his field is International 
Business and he has published nine books and co-edited two

President in the appointment with tenure of 
the following individuals: 

UM/Amherst: 

William R. Adrion as Professor of Computer 

and Information Sciences 
Donald Arganbright as Professor of Forestry 

and Wildlife Management

of Political Science (Doc. T86-047) 

The next item was Awards of Tenure at Amherst and 
Boston. Provosts O'Brien and Greene reviewed the 
background of the candidates recommended. Dennis Burkh is 
the director of the Five College Symphony Orchestra and 
has a long international background. Michael Sussman, who 
is referred to by some as one of the top clarinetists in 
the United States today, is a person of substantial 
distinction. Brook Thomas is also a remarkable critic in 
the English area. He has been described by an outside 
reviewer as "one of the most talented critics of his 
generation. 



n 



There was a discussion of the education requirements 
in the performing arts area. 

Provost Greene spoke to the Award of Tenure to Melissa 
M. Shook who teaches photography. She has superb teaching 
endorsements and was the recipient in 1985 of a $15,000 
National Endowment for the Visual Arts Fellowship. She 
has photographs in the permanent collections of the 
Metropolitcan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art and 
the Museum in Stockholm. 

There was a general discussion about the campus 
recommendations and votes. The Committee urged the 
Provosts to include in the materials which come to the 
Trustees in reference to the reasons for split votes on 
the award of tenure. 

It was moved seconded and 

. VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 
the President in the award of tenure to 
the following individuals: 

-2- 



UM/Amherst : 

Dennis Burkh as Associate Professor of 

Music and Dance 
Michael Sussman,as Associate Professor of 
Music and Dance 
Brook Thomas as Associate Professor of English 

UM/Boston: 

Melissa M. Shook as Associate Professor of Art. 

(Doc. T86-053) 

The next item was the Postponement of Return From 
Sapbatical Leave for Professor Lawrence Pinkham who is in 
the People's Republic of China. Professor Pinkham has 
been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship which will enable him 
to continue his work in organizing an English language 
journalism program at the Bejing University. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for 

one year the requirement that Lawrence Pinkham 
return to the University on completion of his 
sabbatical leave; further, to grant Professor 
Pinkham a leave without pay from September 1, 
1986 through August 31, 1987. (Doc. T86- 
0.48) 

The next item was the Consolidation of the Department 
of Environmental Science within the School of Health 
Sciences . The proposal would merge a small department 
into a larger one. The two units share common work in 
areas such as water and air pollution and various 
environmental concerns including environmental advocacy so 
there is a natural affinity. The merger would strengthen 
both departments through enhanced teaching and research 
and offer more comprehensive programs for graduate and 
undergraduate students. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

transfer of the Department of Environmental 
Sciences at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst from the College of Food and Natural 
Resources to the Division of Public Health; 
further, to approve the merger of said 
Department into the Division of Public Health 
of the School of Health Services. (Doc. T86- 
055) 

The next item was a Proposal for a New Undergraduate 
Major in Engineering Science at Boston. This program is 
intended to produce technical generalists. The Boston 
campus has a program of Engineering Transfer whereby 



-3- 



students take the first two years of engineering on the 
Boston campus and then transfer to UM/Amherst, Tufts, 
Boston University, Wentworth or to Northeastern. 

This program builds upon that and offers to a student 
who goes through the first two years of that Engineering 
Program a minor in Management plus four additional 
sciences courses in the third and fourth years. One new 
position is needed and will be provided by internal 
transfer . 

There is very strong support for the program as it 
very clearly fills an academic need. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish, 

subject to the concurrence of the Board of 
Regents, the Bachelor of Science Degree 
Program in Engineering Science at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston as 
described in Doc. T86-056. 

The next item was the Establishment of the Graduate 
School of Nursing at Worcester. Dr. Smith explained that 
this was a housekeeping matter. The proposal for the 
Medical School to offer a Master's degree in Nursing 
contained information about the development of the School 
of Nursing but the Trustee action did not specifically 
establish the Graduate School of Nursing. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the 

Board vote of February 9, 1983 dealing with 
said program as follows, to insert the words 
"the establishment of the Graduate School of 
Nursing and the," between the words "of 
regents," and "Master of Science," so that the 
vote will read: 

"To approve the establishment of the Graduate 
School of Nursing and the Master of Science 
Program in Nursing Program at the University 
of Massachusetts at Worcester as described in 
Doc. T83-001" (Doc. T83-001A)

The Committee then heard a Status Report on the 
General Education Requirements at Amherst and Boston. 

Dr. Smith, in introducing this item, referred to the 
several reports on higher education published a few years 
ago. In those reports was a concern about the whole area 
of general education and what universities and colleges 
were doing in terms of exposing students to general 
education. The document clearly identifies that those 
issues have been addressed quite well on both the Amherst 
and Boston campuses. 

At Amherst, implementation of the general education 
requirements by the Amherst Faculty Senate represents the 
culmination of a process which took several years and 
involved the participation of a large number of faculty, 
students, and administrators. 

The new requirements are comprehensive and require 
that students have two courses in the arts, two in 
historical studies, two in social studies, three courses 
in the biological and physical sciences, two levels of 
mathematics and two levels of writing. 

Norman Aitken, Associate Provost for Undergraduate 
Education, described the courses and the financial 
problems of implementing the requirements. He praised the 
work of the faculty and commented on the review procedure. 

On the Boston campus, which was one of the first 
campuses in the nation to re-introduce a core curriculum 
in the College of Arts and Sciences in 1978, a unique set 
of requirements has been implemented in each of the three 
degree awarding colleges. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 3:50 p.m.

Professor Nelson, Faculty Representative 

UM /Worcester : Dr. Hanshaw, Provost/Dean; Dr. Kelly, 
Deputy Provost 

Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 2:05 
p.m. The first item on the agenda was Appointments with 
Tenure- -UM/Amherst . 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the 
President in the appointment of Philip 
Jacobs as Professor of Public Health with 
tenure and of Emanuel Rubin as Professor of 
Music and Dance with tenure at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst. 

The next matter was Awards of Tenure--UM/Amherst . 
After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the 
President in the award of tenure to Robert 
Gardner, Associate Professor of Mathematics 
and Statistics and to Patricia Gillespie- 
Silver, Associate Professor of Human Services 
and Applied Behaviorial Sciences at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. (Doc. 
T86-069) 



The next item was Human Development/Clinical Psychology 
Ph.D. Program--UM/Boston . In the course of discussion 
concern was expressed over what seems to have been a 
breakdown in communication between the Boston campus and 
Amherst. The guidelines for inter-campus consultation in 
the development of new graduate programs seem to have been 
ignored. Vice President Smith said that new guidelines 
were being prepared and would soon come to the Board. 
Also, the new guidelines will not be limited to graduate 
programs. After further discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, 

subject to the concurrence of the Board of 
Regents, the Ph.D. program in Human 
Development/Clinical Psychology at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston as 
described in Doc. T86-077. 

The Trustees then discussed Computer Science Ph.D. 
Program'--UM/Boston . Once again the issue of inter-campus 
consultation was raised. 

Provost Greene then said that this proposal had put 
the campus into a sort of "chicken and egg" dilemma--bef ore 
the Program could be implemented there had to be 
additional faculty and other resources such as library 
materials. However, in order to recruit qualified faculty 
there had to be a signal that such a program would be in 
place. Trustee approval at this time would be such a 
signal. Provost Greene said that the program would not be 
implemented until the preconditions were met. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve, 

subject to the concurrence of the Board of 
Regents, the Ph.D. Program in Computer Science 
at the University of Massachusetts at Boston 
as described in Doc. T86-075. 

The Committee then discussed Occupational Education 
Program--UM/Boston . In the course of the discussion, 
Trustees Caruso and Saba expressed support for the 
program. Trustee Zervas questioned the relevance of the 
program to the mission of the University. After further 
discussion, it was agreed that the proposal be tabled and 
that it be dealt with at a special meeting to be held just 
before the Board meeting on October 1. 



-2- 



The next item was Revised Academic Personnel Policy--UM/ 
Worcester . Chairman Troy said his only question concerned 
the statement in Article IV, Section 6.5 b. which says that 
under certain circumstances a faculty member could be 
terminated with 30 day notice "notwithstanding any contrary 
policy of the Board of Trustees." The other Trustees 
expressed concern, Trustee Caruso said that such a faculty 
member could appeal to the Trustees. 

Deputy Provost Kelly said that counsel had approved the 
statement. He also noted that an additional document was 
being prepared which would address the concerns of the 
Trustees. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
revised Academic Personnel Policy of the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School 
contained in Doc. T80-011B, which document 
supercedes Doc. T80-011A, approved by the Board 
March 5, 1980. 

The next item was Academic Personnel Policies--UM/Amherst 
and UM/Boston . After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the re- 
visions to the Sabbatical Leave Policy (Doc. 
T66-049, as amended) and to the Academic 
Personnel Policy (Doc. T76-081). (Doc. T86- 
076) 

The Committee then considered Waiver of Sabbatical Leave 
Requirement --UM/Amherst . After brief discussion, it was 
moved , seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board waive the re- 
quirement that Frank Fata, Professor of French 
and Italian at Amherst return to the University 
on completion of his sabbatical leave. (Doc. 
T86-072) 

The Committee agreed to table the Undergraduate Program 
Reviews --UM/Amherst and UM/Boston until the next regular 
meeting.

University of Massachusetts Medical Center. 
(Doc. T86-080) 

The next two items were to establish and appoint 
faculty to Named Professorships at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. Vice President Smith commented 
about the recommendation to establish Distinguished 
University Professorships to honor deserving faculty at 
the Amherst campus. This nomenclature was arrived at in 
an effort to avoid proliferation of named chairs. Each 
chair will expire when the incumbent retires. In 
addition, the total number of honorific chairs on campus 



will be limited to 2% of the faculty ranks. He also noted 
that the campus amended its original request to appoint 
two Distinguished University professors and the third 
appointment would be to the Josiah Dubois Professor of 
History. 

President Knapp then informed the Committee that the 
University was planning to seek legislation this year that 
would provide a pool of ten overscale professorships 
authorized by the state which would be assigned to the 
University if one half million dollars was raised to 
support the cost of the professorships. It was moved, 
seconded and

of History. (Doc. T86-082) 

Provost O'Brien then spoke to the Appointment of Dr. 
Margaret Barr Bigelow as Ray Ethan Torrey Professor of 
Botany . Dr. Bigelow's record as a distinguished biologist 
is impressive and her appointment to the Torrey 
Professorship would be a fitting tribute. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board appoint Margaret 
Barr Bigelow to the Ray Ethan Torrey 
Professorship of Botany *t the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. (Doc. T86-083)

Planning at the Amherst campus. Vice President Smith in 
presenting this item said this program was built on an 
established Master's Degree Program in Regional Planning 
and that the proposal was being discussed with the Boston 
campus . 

-2- 



Provost O'Brien then introduced Professor Gross and 
Dean Bruce McDougail who answered specific questions about 
employment opportunities for graduates and the demand for 
the program. 

Provost O'Brien described the campus review process 
which includes the quality of the program, the suitability 
for the campus and the financial implications. It is then 
sent to the President's Office and reviewed by the other 
campuses for duplication 

Vice President Smith added that the guidelines for new 
academic programs approved by the Academic Affairs Council 
will be presented to the Committee at the next meeting. 

The next item discussed was the Undergraduate Program 
Reviews at Amherst and Boston. Vice President Smith said 
that in most instances the reviews spoke very highly of 
the programs particularly the quality of the faculty on 
both campuses. Also the recommendations addressed the 
areas of equipment, and in some instances additional 
space, graduate students stipends and faculty, all of 
which are aimed at improving the quality of the programs. 
These recommendations also give the campuses a basis for 
making requests in their budget. 

President Knapp informed the Committee that the Board 
of Regents was reviewing a recommendation for a $953 
million year capital outlay budget for the state. For the 
University, the major recommendations are in the beginning 
years. There is a $75 million equipment reserve - part of 
which is for laboratory equipment and part for computing - 
which would come in the second and fourth years. From the 
documentation received, there is no indication what the 
University's portion would be. 

The last item on the agenda was Graduation Lists at 
Amherst, Boston and Worcester. At Amherst there were 347 
undergraduates and 391 undergraduates at Boston. At 
Worcester there was one candidate for the Master's Degree 
in Medical Sciences. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
Graduation Lists at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, Boston and Worcester 
contained in Doc. T86-001G, subject to the

the University was two percent, exclusive of collective 
bargaining. No new requests were funded except for 

-3- 



one-time purchases of equipment. In addition to the 
budget, the Governor's recommendation provides an FY 1 86 
Supplemental appropriation of $4.8 million earmarked for 
engineering and nursing equipment and $881,840 for general 
academic program improvement. He reported that there were 
significant gains for library expenditures in a Library 
SDecial Appropriation. The Governor's FY'87 Capital 
Outlay recommendation Drovides $13.5 for the University 
and $3.8 in a reserve account for equipment which will be 
distributed by the Board of Reaents. After a lengthy 
discussion of the budget Drocess and other appropriation 
items, it was requested that the Committee discuss, at its 
March 26th meeting, the strategy planned for use of the 
250 Stuart Street Building. 

The next item was a recommendation for a ten percent 
Rate Increase in Hospital Patient Charges . The increase, 
as explained by Mr. Waterbrook, was part of a strategy to 
meet a -potential fiscal deficit which the hospital faces. 
He added that planned actions to reduce spending will be 
presented in detail at the February meeting of the 
Hospital Management Board. In the course of the 
discussion that followed, Trustee Carlin asked to go on 
record supporting expense reductions and then revenue 
increases. 

The next item discussed was a proposal to allocate 
$390,000 from the Trustee Reserve for renovations at the 
Worcester campus. The Committee, after some discussion, 
tabled the item until additional information was received. 

Chairman Knowles then briefed the Committee on the 
background and the status of wrestling, women's and men's 
golf, tennis and skiing at the Amherst campus. He added 
that the campus Athletic Committee had revisited the issue 
and reinstated men's and women's tennis. Trustee Buraess 
in presenting this item modified his request and asked the 
Committee to recommend that the Board reinstate men's and 
women's skiing at the varsity level. He then introduced 
the ski coach, William McConnell, the captains of the 
men's and women's ski teams, David Greenburg and Colleen 
Sweeney and an alumnus, Theresa Collins, who spoke in 
favor of reinstating skiing. It was moved, seconded and 

VQTSD : To recommend that the 3oard continue at 
the varsity level the Men's and Women's

A request for a loan of $150, 000 from the Trustee 
Reserve to University Health System, Inc., the Hospital

Chairman Oakes convened the meeting at 2:00 p.m. 

The first item on the agenda was the establishment of 
the Theresa M. Corcoran/George M. Roddy Physical Education 
Graduate Scholarship Endowment Fund at Boston. The 
scholarships will be awarded to senior physical education 
majors at the Boston campus who have been accepted by a 
graduate program in physical education or related area. 
It was moved, seconded 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 
Theresa M. Corcoran/George M. Roddy 
Physical Education Graduate Scholarship 
endowment fund at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. T86-038) 



The next item was to accept land and buildings in

Transfer of Land was directed by the Legislature as part 
of the FY86 Appropriation Act. After discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and

changes in the Residence Hall Contract at

and approval. After a brief discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY87 Audit Plan set forth 
in Doc. T86-043. 

Chancellor Tranquada gave an overview of the FY87 
Hospital Trust Fund Budge t. The budget proposes that the 
Hospital will operate in FY87 at a break-even rate. Some 
of the realities addressed in the budget are a continued 
declined in inpatient days as a result of Medicare and HMO 
pressures for shorter lengths of stay and a slight 
increase in hospital admissions for the coming year. In 
FY87 the Gross Patient Revenue is projected to increase 
approximately $7 million due to the 10% rate increase 
approved by the Board in February, 1986. That increase is 
offset by a $10 million increase in contractual allowances 
related to the Hospital's move to the diagnostically 
related group method of payment by Medicare. Non payroll 
expenses are essentially level. The slight increase 
represents inflation in supplies. The budget also sets 
aside a reserve of $2.3 million required to be paid to the 
State's system for compensating for free care of the 
underprivileged. 

There Was discussion and resolution about some of the 
areas of the budget which were of concern to some 
Committee members. The administration was directed to 



-5- 



review the provisions for bad debts and contractual 
allowances to see if there was a possibility for further 
adjustment. It was agreed that the Committee would meet 
before the June 4th Board meeting to discuss the 
provisions for bad debts and contractual allowances. It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the FY87 
Hospital Trust Fund Budget except for the 
provisions for contractual allowances and oacf- 
debts. 

Chancellor Tranquada then informed the Committee about 
recent developments and joint ventures at the Medical 
Center. 

The next item was the Engineering Research Facility . 
The proposal was for the Board of Trustees to request the 
Building Authority to bond money for the construction of 
an Engineering Research Facility. The proposed 36,000- 
gross square foot pre-engineered building would provide 
research laboratories and offices for faculty and graduate 
students in Electrical and Computer Engineering and a 
Research Center for the Chemical Engineering Depart me rvtrv- 
There was a discussion of the lengthy process and 
timetabled involved to complete this project. 

The second part of the proposal was to delegate 
authority to the President to instruct the Building 
Authority to refinance the existing outstanding deot. 
It was moved, seconded and voted to recommend that the 
Board approve the following resolution: 

WHEREAS: University of Massachusetts Building 

Authority (the Authority) is authorized by 
Chapter 773 of the Acts of 1960, as 
amended, among other things, to provide

Vice Chancellor Babcock then reviewed the nine year 
history of the renovation project at 250 Stuart Street. 
He described the current use of the building and proposed 
use after renovations. The renovation plan calls for a 
similar mix of functions to that which now exists in the 
building. The enhanced facilities would permit the 
expansion of a number of programmatic offerings especially 
at the graduate level particularly designed for people who 
work and live in downtown Boston, expanded conference 
activities, and the possibility of theatrical production 
in the basement of the building. 

President Knapp outlined the process for the FY88

The purpose of the meeting was to review the non- 
formula portion of the state budget request for fiscal 
year 1988. President Knapp described the budget calendar 
and process involved in developing the FY88 budget request. 

The 1988 request is consistent with the strategic plan 
which the Board acted on in the fall of 1983. It focuses 
on the selective improvement of care programs. It is a 
budget which is consistent with prior year requests. It 
complements the University's self-help programs and it is 
responsive to accreditation and to Board of Regents 
program reviews.

the graduate programs in terms of program development. 
Thirty-five percent of the funds requested would be 
targeted toward computers, 17% going toward physical 
plant, 13% to Management, 3.8% for nursing, 9% to 
enhancement of the science program, 7% for the increase in 
graduate stipends, 3% for the Urban Harbor Institute and 
11% for the access program. 

There was a discussion of the need and importance for 
library appropriations at the campus. What is being done 
and what has been done to improve the level of quality. 
Trustee Carlin asked that the Committee be supplied with 
comparable figures that institutions spend for books and 
periodicals. 

Provost O'Brien, speaking for the Amherst campus, 
announced that the campus has received a $9 million dollar 
grant over 3 years from the Air Force for the support of 
Polymer Science. 

The requests at Amherst are classifed with three 
general areas: instruction and research, physical plant 
and support services. In the areas of engineering 
management physical sciences and biological sciences funds 
are requested for new faculty and to accomodate demands 
and to allow growth and change in these areas. Supporting 
funds for programs such as undergraduate reforms for 
teacher improvement, for support for the learning disabled 
and for creation of a residential college system are also 
requested. 

In the physical plant area, $1.8 million is requested 
for maintaining and repairing facilities. 

The smallest portion of the request $.8 million falls 
under the category of support services including $.2 
million to underwrite the day care programs which have 
grown very expensive, and $146,000 for constituent fund 
raising. 

Trustee Carlin asked that the Board hear presentations 
from the campuses following up development funds allocated 
two years ago. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : Pursuant to the Board vote of June 4, 
1986, authorizing the Committee to act 
in this matter, the non-formula-driven 
portion of the FY88 Budget Request set 
forth in Doc. T86-051 is approved and 
the President is authorized to submit it 
to the Board of Regents.

He noted that the FY86 fiscal closing was going well. 
Also, the gross number of the FY87 budget were available 
and would be discussed later in the meeting. A unique

Also progressing were the planning sessions on the 
Governor's message for higher education. The President 



also noted that there was money in the FY87 budget for new

Chairman Oakes convened the meeting at 2:10 p.m. 

Chancellor Duffey alerted the Committee about the 
possibility of negative press concerning the upcoming visit 
and awarding of the Honorary Degree to Prime Minister 
Mugabe. 

The first item on the agenda was the establishment of 
the Virginia A. Beal Scholarship Endowment Fund at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. The awards will be 
provided, ranging from $300 to $500 each, to at least one 
senior and one graduate student majoring in Human Nutrition 
at the Amherst campus. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 

Virginia A. Beal Scholarship Endowment Fund 



at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
earnings from the fund will provide scholarships to 
students majoring in Human Nutrition under the 
conditions set forth in Doc. T86-078; further, to 
express to Professor Seal the gratitude of the Board 
for this generous gift. 

The next request from the Boston campus was to 
Transfer a Two Acre Parcel of Land to the MBTA to 
allow construction of a new station at the JFK/UMASS 
stop on the Red Line. The new station, which will be 
near the current MBTA stop, will double the capacity 
of students coming to the campus from the Cambridge 
area. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board endorse the 
proposal of the Massachusetts Bay 
Transportation Authority for reconstruction 
of the JFK/UMass Red Line Transit station, 
including the use of the University-owned 
property at the site, for the purpose of 
constructing a new terminal facility for 
the University Shuttle Bus System and 
adding a transit stop at the station on the 
Quincy/Braintree branch of the Red Line; 
further, to authorize the Chancellor (1) to 
proceed with all necessary steps for 
transferring ownership of that University 
property to the MBTA, and (2) pending such 
transfer, to enter into any and all 
necessary agreements with the MBTA, and the 
Board of Regents and the Division of 
Capital Planning and Operations for 
construction of the project. (Doc. T86-077) 

The next item was the FY87 Operating Budget. 
President Knapp reported that the revenue of the state 
portion for the University this year is $257 million 
exclusive of collective bargaining increases. This 
represents a 5.3% increase. He also reviewed the 
total state appropriations by campus including 
maintenance amount, state specials, capital outlay 
reserve and supplemental appropriations. 

Trustee Carlin raised several questions which he 
asked to have answered at a later date. He noted that 
it was his understanding that there was not to be an 
increase in the number of residents at the Medical 
Center, while the Budget document showed an increase. 
He also commented about the special state funds 



received by the Hospital and commented that if the 
Hospital is to seek and receive state funds, the Board 
should be aware that this is a major departure from 
the policy that the Hospital be operated without state 
funds. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY87 Operating Budget contained in Doc. 
T86-052. 

President Knapp then spoke about the Capital 
Outlay: Governor's Special Message. The monies are 
waiting review and approval by the Board of Regents 
and he encouraged Trustees to speak to the Regents 
about the significance of this message for the 
University.

The matter for consideration related to a request to 
establish the Position of Vice Chancellor for External 
Relations at the University of Massachusetts at Boston and 
Personnel Action for the position. 

Chancellor Corrigan spoke to the item. He indicated 
that the Board had previously approved the position of 
Vice Chancellor for University Relations and Development 
but that it was more appropriate at this time to separate 
the development and external relations duties. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the

Relations at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Boston; further, to concur along

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:30 
p.m. He called for a motion to go into executive session 
to discuss candidates for honorary degrees at the Special 
Convocation for the Arts at Amherst. He noted that the 
Committee would reconvene in open session. It was then 
moved, seconded and on roll call 

VOTED : To enter executive session. 

The time was 2:32 p.m. 

At 2:45 p.m. the Committee reconvened in open session 
and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : « To recommend that the Board award 
honorary degrees at the April 2, 
1986, Special Convocation for the 
-Arts at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst to those individuals 
agreed upon in executive session and to 
instruct the Chancellor to proceed with the 
necessary arrangements. 



The next item was Hospital Managment Board Minutes . 
After brief discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
minutes of the November 20, and December 
18, 1985, meetings of the Hospital Manage- 
ment Board, including the unaudited finan- 
cial statements, the appointments and 
reappointments to the Medical Staff, the 
Hospital Performance Profile, and the 
By-Laws of the Medical Staff. (Doc. T86-002) 

The Committee then discussed the Appointment of Keith 
Waterbrook as Vice Chancellor and Hospital Director at the 
Medical Center. Chancellor Tranquada said that Mr. 
Waterbrook had been with the Center since 1980 and had 
held a number of increasingly responsible positions. He 
was familiar with all phases of the hospital operations 
and interacted very well with the staff and faculty. 

Given the shortfalls predicted for the next two fiscal 
years, Chancellor continued, it was inadvisable to conduct 
a national search, which process could have taken a year 
to complete. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur along 
with the President in the appointment by 
the Chancellor of Keith J. Waterbrook as 
Vice Chancellor and Hospital Director at 
the University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 
(Doc. T86-003) 

The final action item was Award of University Medal 
for Outstanding Service to Dorothy N. Marshall. President 
Knapp noted that in addition to her invaluable help in the 
formative years of the Boston campus she had earned a 
national reputation in shaping American higher education. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board award the Uni- 
versity Medal for Outstanding Service to 
Dorothy N. Marshall in recognition of her 
exemplary service as the first Vice Chancellor 
for Academic Affairs and Commonwealth Pro- 
fessor of Political Science at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston, and of her 
contributions to the development of American 
higher education as a whole. (Doc. T86-004)

Trustee Sweeney then asked leave to discuss the budget 
process. He expressed frustration at seeing the Trustees 
approve an adequate and not excessive budget request only 
to see it altered at the three levels that approved the 
budget, that is, Regents, Legislature and Governor. 

After thorough discussion it was agreed that Trustee 
Sweeney would prepare suggestions for discussion at the 
February meeting of the Board. 

There was no further discussion and the meeting 
adjourned at 3:50 p.m.

and until otherwise voted by the Board of 
Trustees. 

Board votes of August 7, 1985 

a. To authorize the Chancellor of the University 

of Massachusetts at Worcester, in consultation 
with the Office of the President, to negotiate 
and execute contracts developed in accordance 
with the provisions of the January 8, 1976 
Interagency Agreement (Doc. T76-031C) or as may

in FY1979 and subsequent years such Hospital, 
Reimbursement Agreements with Blue Cross of 
Massachusetts Inc., and/or its successor as 
are substantially similar in concept and 
reimbursement mechanisms as are now 

in effect and as may be required for 
participation in the Blue Cross service plan 
whereby payment for hospital care, treatment, 
and reimbursement for other health services 
are provided by Blue Cross to members of such 
plan. 

c. Further, to authorize the Chancellor of the 

University of Massachusetts Medical Center to 
delegate to the Dean of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester the authority to 
execute such agreements and contracts in the 
absence of the Chancellor. (Doc. T82-072) 

The next items were to create the Position of Dean and 
Vice Chancellor of the Graduate School of Nursing and to 
formally appoint Kathleen Dirschel to the position. It 
was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board create the 

position of Dean and Vice Chancellor of the 
Graduate School of Nursing at the University 
of Massachusetts at Worcester. 

And further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur along 

with the President in the appointment by the 
President of Kathleen Dirschel as Dean and 
Vice Chancellor of the Graduate School of 
Nursing at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester. (Doc. T83-001A) 

The next item was an Amendment to the Academic 
Personnel Policy at the UMass Medical School. After 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend Doc. 

T80-011A, wherever the term "Chancellor/ 
Dean" is used, it shall hereafter be de- 
fined as meaning "Chancellor or his 
designee. " 

The next item considered related to Registration of 
Securities . This item provides for a technical change in 
the deposit of University stocks as requested by the 
Treasurer of the University. This will enable the speedy 
completion of recordkeeping as well as allow a more 
expeditious transfer upon sale of such stocks. Without 
this measure the Treasurer has encountered substantial 
delays in transfers. After a discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize 

the Treasurer of the University to place 
all corporate securities registered in the 
name of the Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts, which are presently held by 
the Shawmut Bank of Hampshire County, in 
the custody of the Depository Trust Com- 
pany (DTC); to have all such securities 
registered in the name of the depositor's 
nominee, Cede & Co.; and to sign appropriate 
agreements on behalf of the University to 
accomplish such objectives. 

The next matter discussed was the Student Legal 
Services Office at Amherst. Eleven individuals spoke 
about the various aspects of the issue. Six were in favor 
of continuing the current arrangement and five spoke 
against. 



At the end of the discussion Trustee Burgess 
introduced a motion to send the item back to the campus 
and give the campus a short amount of time to try and work 
it out with two administrators, two students, two faculty 
and one representative from LSO. The matter was not 
seconded. He noted that students had not been consulted 
in this matter dealing with students. This constituted a 
violation of the Governance Document. It was then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board rescind the 
Board votes of October 1, 1975 and June 
2, 1976, concerning the Student Legal 
Services Office at the Amherst campus. 

Trustee Burgess is recorded as opposed. 

There was then a motion to establish a Commission to 
study LSO and report its findings to the Chancellor, the 
President and the Trustees. After a discussion and motion 
to amend the composition, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board direct the 

Chancellor of the Amherst campus to appoint 
a Commission to review the role and mission 
of the Student Legal Services Office; the 
Commission shall include two administrators, 
two students, two faculty members and a Legal 
Services Office representative and the Com- 
mission should present its findings and 
recommendations to the Chancellor by 
January 12, 1987, for suomission to the 
President and Trustees. 

Trustee Burgess is recorded as opposed. 

Chairman Quinn then asked for a motion to go into

motion as did Trustees Carlin, Burgess, Caruso, Knowles

Director, Placement Services 

Chairman Caruso convened the meeting at 12:20 p.m. 

The agenda for the meeting focused on University Services 
and programs for the disabled. Representatives from the 
campuses each gave a presentation. 

Mr. Paul Appleby, Director of Handicapped student Affairs 
at Amherst described, from the FY85 Annual Report, the special 
support services available for academic qualified physically 
disabled students. 

The services are provided to any student or staff person 
who has a physical disability. They include: Deaf Services - 
sign language interpreting, note taking, exam writing, 
counseling and sign language instruction; Services for the 
Mobility Impaired - transportation, special scheduling to 
assure accessible classroom locations, assistance in obtaining 
accessible housing, wheelchair repair, counseling and advising; 
Services for Visually Impaired Students - special scheduling, 
assistance in transcribing textbooks to tape and in locating 
readers, use of special equipment, e.g., large print 
typewriter, brailler reading machines and counseling and 



advising; Services for students with Learning Disabilities - 
assistance in locating readers/writers for assignments and 
exams, advocacy for classroom modifications, assistance in 
coping with the foreign language requirement, counseling and 
advising. 

Speaking for the Boston campus, Andrea Schein, Director of 
the Disabled Student Center said alot of the services provided 
are similar to those provided at Amherst. The Harbor campus is 
one of the most accessible physical plants in the Country and 
has been providing support services since 1971. The principal 
function of the Disabled Student Center is to provide services 
and to reduce the competitive disadvantage that disability 
causes in academic work. 

The Center is working on developing approaches to teaching 
English to deaf students. For hard-of-hearing students the 
campus has acquired "phonic ears'* which is a device the student 
wears around his/her neck and the teacher weacs a microphone. 
The two phonic ears available are very popular and there is a 
constant demand. Each system costs about $900. Another 
service provided is typing for disabled students. 

The campus expects to see a substantial growth in the popu- 
lation of all disabled students partly because of Project 
Reach. Project Reach is a grant received from the U.S. 
Department of Education to encourage qualified disabled 
students to complete secondary education and undertake a pro- 
gram of post-secondary study. 

The issue of the University attracting more disabled stu- 
dents than community colleges because of the support services 
available was discussed. 

Ms. Schein noted the accomplishments of one particular 
student at the Campus, Linda Faye who graduated five years ago 
and was the first paraplegic to attend and graduate from 
Harvard Medical School. She is now practicing in Washington 
D.C. 

Alta LaPoint, Director of Placement Services, from 
Worcester announced that the Worcester campus had won the 
National Award as Employer of the Year. The campus was picked 
over all of the U.S. and happens to be the first hospital that 
has received the award. The two major reasons why the Presi- 
dent's Committee chose the Medical Center was it is the only 
place that has an office with a full-time person as Coordinator 
of Handicapped Services dealing with employment and because it 
was cited as hiring more severly disabled people than anyone in 
the country.

She then showed the slide presentation shown in Washington 
D.C. 

The program was so well received that it was suggested that 
the Board of Trustees should have the privilege of hearing it. 



There being no further business to come before the Commit- 
tee, the meeting adjourned at 2:15 p.m.

The first matter for consideration related to the 
minutes of the December 5, 1985 meeting. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the December 5, 
1985 meeting. 

Chairman Quinn began his report by expressing 
appreciation to Trustee Caruso who represented the Board 
at the presentation of the Foster Furcolo scholarships at 
the Boston campus. 

President Knapp, reporting on upcoming events, said 
that on February 11th there was scheduled a dinner 
honoring alumni in State Government. He announced, that 
plans were underway for an Administrative Conference in 
mid-April focusing on the Changing Environment for Higher 
Education at both the federal and state levels but with 



particular emphasis upon the potential impact of Gramm 
Rudman-Hollings Act on the financing of higher education. 
Also in the planning stage is an exchange conference 
between the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg in West Germany 
and Massachusetts focusing on areas related to industry, 
State, academic relations and economic growth and 
development. He announced that the collective bargaining 
process with the faculty has started and Coalition 
bargaining has also begun for the non-faculty contracts. 
He concluded his report by informing the Trustees that he 
is representing the public presidents on the Search 
Committee for the Chancellor of the Board of Regents. 

In light of the time, Chancellor Duffey refrained from 
giving a report. 

Chancellor Corrigan reported on the status of 
applications and the recent Report on the Emerging Black 
Community which was a product of the newly formed 
Institute for Black Studies. Copies of the report were 
made available to the Trustees. 

Chancellor Tranquada reported that the University 
Hospital recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of the 
admission of its first patient. He also reported that for 
seventy nine first year residency positions 7,500 
applications were received. 

Trustee Troy then reported for the Committee on 
Academic and Student Affairs. Without discussion it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To concur with the President in the award 
of tenure to Charles H. Emerson, Professor 
of Medicine at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester. (Doc. T86-006) 

and, 

VOTED : To concur with the President in the 

appointments with tenure to the following 
individuals at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst: 

Louis D. Quin, Professor of Chemistry 
Yvonne Yazbeck Haddad, Professor of History 
Marc Shell, Professor of Comparative Literature 
Neil A. Duffie, Associate Professor of 

Mechanical Engineering (Doc. T86-005) 

and further, 



-2- 



VOTED : To waive the requirement that Professor 
Walter Grossman return to the University 
of Massachusetts at Boston on completion 
of his sabbatical leave. (Doc. T86-007) 



and, 

VOTED : To change the Master of Education in 

Bilingual/ESL Program at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston to the Master of 
Arts in Bilingual/English as a Second 
Language Program. (Doc. T86-008) 

and further, 

VOTED : To approve the graduation list of the 
Class of 1986 at the University of 
Massachusetts and the February, 1986, 
graduation lists of the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. Both subject to 
the completion of all requirements as 
certified by the recorder of the campus. 

He then reported that the Committee heard reports from 
the three campuses on the status of admissions and the 
problem of financial aid. In highlighting some of the 
facts presented in Doc. T86-009, he said that, despite the 
demographic timebomb which threatens many institutions now 
and in the near future because of the decline in the 
college age population all three campuses have shown 
strong drawing power. At Amherst, freshman applications 
are up 6.5% over last year and at Boston while freshman 
applications dropped slightly, 1.2% of the total, 
undergraduate applications are up 6%. At Boston transfer 
applicants are 14.8%. In fact transfer students now 
constitute about 60% of the new student body. Eighty 
percent of those transfers come from state institutions 
and one-half of that group are from community colleges or 
two-year colleges. He said, the Medical school continues 
to draw large numbers of applicants most of them superbly 
qualified. Minority student representation has increased 
at Amherst - it is now at 8.6% of the freshman class. At 
Boston, minorities represent 24.6% of the freshman class 
and 16% of the transfer class. Applications to graduate 
study at Boston continues to grow - the graduate 
population is up 31% over 1984. The Medical School 
continues to emphasize recruitment of minority students 
through reaching into the high schools and also the first 
years of college education. At Amherst, SAT scores are up 
8% and at Boston 8% also. The financial aid picture is 
mixed. At Amherst, the total unmet need is about 25%. 
At Boston, the unmet need is about 46%. Of the aid given 
at Amherst, 57.5% is in loans, 31% in grants and 11% 



-3-

' 



in employment. At Boston, 44% is in loans, 49% is in 
grants and almost 7% in employment. At Worcester, 78% is 
in loans, 19% in grants and almost 3% in employment. In 
general, however, the picture is encouraging and for the 
foreseeable future there should not be a serious problem 
with holding our own in the area of admissions. He added 
that at Amherst there is still the problem of limited 
access to programs of first choice by students - 
approximately 22% had to choose alternative majors. 

In concluding his report, he said that Trustee Burgess 
had asked the Committee to discuss the problems created by 
the elimination of varsity status for the Men's and 
Women's Ski Teams and the Golf Team. At the Committee 
meeting, the Captains of the Ski Teams, Ms. Colleen 
Sweeney and Mr. David Greenburg spoke to the Committee 
briefly but persuasively and, he said, the Committee was 
very much impressed. 

Trustee Knowles then gave the report of the Committee 
on Budget and Financial Affairs, He noted that the first 
item at the January 29, 1986 meeting was Endowment Funds. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To accept the gifts from the Teachers 

College of the City of Boston, Elementary 
Division, in the amount of $2,000 and the

minutes of the February 5, 1986 meeting. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the February 
5, 1986 meeting. 

The next item on the agenda was the Chairman's 
report. Chairman Quinn welcomed Trustee William Bowman to 
his first meeting as a Trustee. 



President Knapp announced there would be an 
Administrative Conference held in Boston and invited the 
Trustees to join him on April 15th to hear Dan Dimancescu, 
co-author of Global Stakes , speak about university 
relations and economic development. 

Reporting on the FY86 Budget, he said the House Ways 
and Means Committee recommendation was $5 million dollars 
over the Governor's recommendation but there were two 
aspects which were of great concern. One section relating 
to emergency repair funds was missing the Amherst campus 
deferred maintenance items. Efforts are underway to have 
it restored. The other section of concern related to 
Medical School admission and essentially removed from the 
Board the authority to set the admission policy for the 
Medical School. The statutory recommendation requires a 
minimum of one-third of the students admitted come from 
institutions of Massachusetts public higher education. 

In concluding his report, he mentioned that the 
Governor was planning a special message on facilities for 
all of higher education. 

In response to a question about the status of library 
funds, he reported that there was a bill in the House Ways 
and Means Committee which included funding for equipment 
for engineering and nursing and funding for libraries. 

As part of his report, Chancellor Corrigan announced 
that on April 15th, the TV Series, Chronicle , would 
feature a segment about the development of the Boston 
campus and in an upcoming issue Time magazine would rank 
the Boston campus as one of nine fast rising and ambitious 
institutions . 

Chancellor Tranquada reported on the recent reduction 
in force at the Medical Center. He also alerted the 
Trustees that the Worcester Telegram in three separate 
articles had expressed concern about the process used by 
the Medical Center in obtaining a lease for the Primary 
Care Center. He said that March 19th was "match day" the 
day when all medical students learned at the same time 
where they would have their residency positions. 98% of 
the Medical School's students were matched; 88% were 
matched on their first four choices; 69% selected 
residencies in primary care areas; 15% in family practice; 
42% in medicine and the remainder in pediatrics. The 
quality of the institutions which accepted the 



Medical School students include John Hopkins, Georgetown, 
Brigham and Women's, University of California, New England 
Medical Center, Massachusetts General and many others. 

He also reported that the President's Committee on 
Employment of the Handicapped had selected the Medical 
Center as the United States 1986 Employer of the Year. 

Trustee Troy then reported for the Committee on 
Academic and Student Affairs which met on March 19th. The

of a Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Worcester.

Biomedical Sciences at the University of

The next item was Awards with Tenure at Amherst, 
Boston, and Worcester. In response to a question 
concerning the flexibility within the institutions with 
such high numbers of tenured faculty, Trustee Troy said 
that this issue was addressed at length at the Committee 
meeting. He added that the campuses are sensitive to this 



issue and the Committee always brings that question to 
bear when tenure is discussed. After further discussion,

VOTED : To approve the consolidation of the 

Department of German and the Department of 
Russian at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston to form the Department of German

to complete her Ph.D. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To postpone for a further year the

Trustee Troy then reported that the Committee 
discussed the Code of Student Conduct at Amherst and

things, to drive home the idea of the importance of 
proper conduct where visiting people who have points 
of view not too popular with some elements be given a 
fair chance to speak. 

Trustee Oakes then gave the report of the 
Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs. 

The first item on the agenda was the establishment 
of the Theresa M. Corcoran/George M. Roddy Physical 
Education Graduate Scholarship Endowment Fund at 
Boston . The scholarships will be awarded to senior 
physical education majors at the Boston campus who 
have been accepted by a graduate program in physical 
education or related area. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To establish the Theresa M. 

Corcoran/George M. Roddy Physical 
Education Graduate Scholarship endowment 
fund at the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston. (Doc. T86-038)

Transfer of Land was directed by the Legislature as part 
of the FY86 Appropriation Act. It was moved, seconded and

tuition waivers for M.D. students in fiscal year 1987. It 
was pointed out that since the Graduate School of Nursing 
had not been accredited, financial aid was not available. 
The increase in the need-based tuition waivers reflects 
the decreases in the availability of external aid funds 
for medical students. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the Medical 
Center to grant tuition waivers in the 
amount of $8,100 to students in the 
Graduate School of Nursing and an

figures recommended in the revised budget - a 1% reduction 
in the salary and wages expense category and a more than 
10% reduction for bad debts. He said that the reductions 
were excessive but if the budget was approved in its

other means of supporting such housing, and an

Trustee Oakes then spoke about the FY88 Budget

budget prepared by the Regents and the non-formula 
requests. He encouraged all Trustees to attend a special 
meeting of the Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs 
scheduled for June 27th at which time the the FY 1 88

idea of a retreat and about the specific time given.

development. The recommendation to the Board from the 
Executive Committee was that the plans for such a memorial 
be approved by the Board of Trustees. The permission 
would be revocable at any time on the decision of the 
Board. 

Trustee Zervas asked the matter be postponed until 
there was a review of the land use policy for 
non-university use. 

Chancellor Corrigan in response to a question about 
the future need of the four acres said that only two acres 
were high ground and the other two acres were filled land 
below the tide water none of which could be built on. 

There was also discussion why the memorial is limited 
to Dorchester Vietnam Veterans and there was a concern 
expressed about the University becoming too localized. 
Liability for the land should be explored. 

Chancellor Corrigan asked that, if approved, a letter 
be sent to the Veteran's group spelling out exactly what 
the obligations are. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To permit the Dorchester Chapter of Vietnam 

Combat Veterans Combined Armed Forces to erect
